How to make a silent disease disappear?
Endometriosis is a condition in which the layer of tissue that normally covers the inside of the uterus grows outside of it. In most cases the tissue grows on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and tissue around the uterus and ovaries; however, in rare cases it may also occur in other parts of the body. It is not normal to feel severe pain during menstruation. If the pain prevents you from being active and hinders your ability to be productive, you should consider making an appointment with a gynecologist to determine the real source of such disorders.
Did you know that a deficiency of progesterone could cause endometriosis? Indeed, progesterone regulates the excessive emotions, nervousness, anxiety and irritability that can be caused by estrogen. On a physical level, a lack of progesterone may be a source of many troubles. In fact, the breasts, ovaries and uterus may be filled with water and with cells that multiply in an anarchic way. That will create a swelling of the breasts and the belly that is also painful. It will also cause an excessive blood loss during menstruation. When progesterone deficiency persists and becomes chronic, endometriosis may develop.
My colleague, Dr. Marc Naett, gives us more information:
Endometriosis is a condition whose origin is little known, but which causes small hemorrhagic lesions at or around the female genital tract. These lesions appear only after puberty and are maintained by the menstrual cycle. Without more precision is suspected to date a chronic inflammatory state and immune disorders that would be the cause of this disease.
The signs of endometriosis that may exist at different degrees are most often:
| Pain at the end of the period
| Pelvic pain
| Pain during intercourse
The diagnosis can be made by complementary examinations (MRI – laparoscopy) but a treatment of the cause does not exist. In fact, the best treatment is to remove the menstruation that sustains the disease, which is not always very easy or desirable.
There is a nutritional approach that aims to prevent intestinal and icronutritional inflammation to reduce inflammation: Zinc, Vit D, turmeric, antioxidant.
A pregnancy is not contraindicated. Indeed, during pregnancy, the hormonal and immune climate will allow the lesions to heal for 9 months, especially that during all this time there will be no period to maintain the disease.
